Lokmanya Tilak and a young couple

Date:Sometime in December 2005
Time :11:00 Pm
Place: Aboard the Lokmanya Tilak Kurla Express train

Once when I was travelling back to Cbe, this happened.
I was alloted a side upper berth....Nearby there was a young newly wed couple...ONe of their seats was right under me...and the other was in the adjacent bay, side lower.
When I was about to start to the slumberland...that newly wed guy told me,
"i dont have my mobile now, could you please keep an alarm in your mobile for 3:00 AM and wake us up..We have to get off at Salem"
"Ya, OK..no probs...", I told.
And the wife slept in the side lower under my berth and the hubby in the adjacent bay...
At 3:00AM, my mobile Sang its "we will rock you"..I promptly woke...Tried to reach the girl from my berth itself and wake her..It wasn't possible...So i got down, woke that girl up..and went back to my berth...

I kinda lost my sleep. I heard the girl getting up and waking her hubby...he told,
"Salem is half an hour away...so you get back to ur berth.."
That girl too came back to her berth and apparently lay down...
Then I heard that guy getting up, and coming to his wife...I sensed him getting into the same berth as his wife!!!???

Then I heard sounds of "mmuah..mmmuah" and some more undescribable sounds...this went on for like 30-40 seconds..then he got off...both of them got up, collected their stuff..Salem station had came by then...Off they went....

Doesn't it sound bizarre...

I was feeling like.."what the heck..after all train is a public place.....What if someone woke up and switched on a light..."
I dont think anything beyond smooching would have happened though:-)But still....

Hey Div, be happy that it was you... If some of the poor souls of Delphi had been at your position, it would have freaked them out. Besides what the hell can you blame, the movies, the media, westernization is now inevitable in all its aspects. u should have been to a few places in B'lore to see the hideousness this place of rich cultural heritage has become :-(

Well, this is nothing in front of what happened when I was coming back from Goa to Delhi. I don't remember the train, but a newly wed couple (probably coming back from honeymoon) boarded the compartment. They had their berth right in front of us (me and my parents). I was on upper berth.. and parents on lower ones. 95% times they had a bed cover hanged in front of them, hanging from the upper berth. Whatever they might be doing, it was day time!! There are people around.. and a family in front of them. Ok.. maybe the guy was too bold and outgoing, but still.. u live in India!
That was surely awkward for many.

I have seen such scenes when we were on our final year tour to Manali, honeymoon couples do these kinda things as a result of too much enthu. It need not be India wherever it is such kind of acts shud always be private. I mean sleeping on the shoulders of your hubby doesnt make any harm, but everytghing has limits. We r spoiling ourselves in the name of westernisation, guess these type of ppl must watch the movie Page 3. :)

It happend every where not only in train...

i have encountered this in buses ( erode - Chennai), Blore- Kappan park.. etc....

FYI- the girl I mentioned in kappan park is not newly married she was in here school dress.

On that day i realised the fact that india is a fast growing nation( in all means).

Ghost Particle said...

Im back Divya! And thats a weird thing to do in a train...but it happens here too!

DivUKnoWho said...

Ok just out of curiosity :-)on a lighter note....when it is considered perfectly fine for a guy to take his D*** out and have a leak in the middle of the road even if it is broad day light ...and anyone who happens to pass by has to turn to the other side ..what is wrong if some couple decides to smooch in public....well i am not campaigning for the cause of the couple in question...but just think that if that couple felt it perfectly fine to display their love in public..then it should just be accepted ...and we shouldnt even be wasting out time debating over it :-).....

etho rendu peru santhosama irunthutu poranga....etho hbo late nite show pakkuratha nenachitu freeya vidu :-)

I am surprised they slept in separate berths in the first place.

revatechnic said...

they only did it for 30-40 sec?????!

i think you meant 30-40 minute no???

Khuswant Singh anyone??

You know Who said...

Ur feelings are absolutely right ,
but on there side they could not have controlled their feling so they might have done it. if u feel that it was wrong u should have told them or told TT ..!! (which any normal person will never do).
May be these are feeling one could understand a only after marriage...!! They show smooching and much more in movies which are very public.. so u r lucky that u heard only sounds..

kicha said...

hmm nice experience. you can find these happenings in roads, parks, gardens, restaurants, railway station, bus stops, .... in bangalore! public nuisance.

உங்க cellphoneல பாடின 'we will rock you' tuneஐ கேட்டதும் அந்த புதுமண புருஷன் தன் பொண்டாட்டிய rock பண்ண போயிட்டார் போல தெரியுது... இருந்தாலும், வூட்டுல பண்ண வேண்டியத இப்படி publicஆ பண்றது த்ப்புதான்னு அவங்கள imposition எழுத வைக்கணும்...

dont get with an opinion it might have been only smooching. I had a bad experience while travelling with my cousin after her engagment from kural express to CBE.

she was just engaged and we were travelling togetheer and the most pathetic is we were in 2 ac and in the side birth to my surprise i witnessed somthing more than smooching. Dumbstuck for the whole journey- I was doing my final year engineering .

the next day the way i looked the couples - i dont think they will ever forget my stare. Latter learnt that they were going to ooty for honey moon and were from pune.

My good ness.

I still remember the way they were in their berth. - even the curtains of 2 ac couldnt help hidding htem.
